Description: In this contribution we would like to share our experience in using e-learning materials to complement language teaching in technical English. The Department of Foreign Languages at VSB Technical University of Ostrava offers six languages for students of all seven faculties. Our team is not only trying to look for new methods and ways of teaching languages, but also uses some knowledge and experience for their improvement. Last year our team created a set of modern e-learning courses that develop student’s abilities at speaking, but they also increase the interest in the topics that are sometimes presented in textbooks quite boringly. After each lesson, students have the assignment in the form of e-learning material for additional practice, which is mandatory as a precondition for the final credit test. Our contribution will deal with the individual examples and the concept of the e-learning courses and it will summarize our experience and possibilities of extending the use of e-learning.
